Platte Rocque, Torteval, GY8 0PX
An agricultural field which measuring a total of 1 vergee 8.01 perch (1967m2 or just under half an acre) located on the cliff tops of Torteval enclosed by low earth banks.
The fields are of good quality with a natural slope, well drained with good vehicular access.
Torteval is in two parts, although only 100 feet apart at Rue de L’Aitte. It includes Pleinmont Point, a favourite walk beginning at the quaint harbour of Portelet. The higher ground is Guernsey’s equivalent to Land’s End and the start, or end, of the spectacular south-coast network of cliff paths.
The sandy stretch of Rocquaine Bay and its regatta shared with St Peter’s are mentioned above, but Torteval’s great attraction is the Scarecrow Festival, annually drawing in 8,000 people over two days, strolling through the patchwork of scenic lanes near the parish church.
There is space aplenty throughout the parish, due to the relatively low ratio of houses, and demand is high. Some buyers say it’s too far out, which, for others, is what makes Torteval special.Read our parish guide
